IAF Jet is hit by bird, jettisons fuel tanks, saves lives

Jun 28, 2019 21:18 IST

The quick thinking of an IAF pilot saved lives on Thursday after a Jaguar aircraft loaded with two additional fuel drop tanks and 10 kg practice bombs took off from the Ambala air base for a training mission, but immediately after take-off, was hit by a bird. The pilot quickly jettisoned his fuel tanks and practice bombs, to gain height and then managed to evacuate safely. Part of the debris fell on a house and some on the street but there were no casualties.
